RACING WITH PURPOSE
Climate change is the biggest threat that our ocean, and indeed our planet is facing. Though a complex story to tell, compared with highlighting the issue of plastic on the ocean for example, it is one that we shouldn’t shy away from. It is too important.
Ahead of and during The Ocean Race Europe we will be telling the story of the impact that climate change is having on the ocean and also how it can be a climate hero by absorbing heat and locking away carbon.
The work started by the award-winning sustainability programme of the 2017-18 Race continues as part of The Ocean Race Europe and beyond. The Racing with Purpose programme includes advocacy, science, learning and sustainable event excellence.
